Storytelling with Yona FrenchHawk
Yona FrenchHawk is a full-blooded Cherokee Wisdom Keeper and Ceremonialist. Yona grew up learning the songs and stories of his people. There are less than 300 Full-Blooded Cherokee that remain out of a documented 50,000 enrolled members in the federally recognized Eastern Band of North Carolina and Western Band of Oklahoma. To keep his traditions alive, Yona is honored to bridge the ancient past to the ancient future which is in constant need of support. Peace, Love, and Unity, are the essences of spirit that will nurture the healing of the future. The rainbow that illuminates our destination as a Spirit Nation.
Yona offers his BirdClan gift of song and storytelling plus ceremony of the Eastern Cherokees. This time honored, ancient knowledge bridges the new age thinking to the ancient past and traditions. The time of suffering and sacrifice is over because our ancestors prayed for a better and more prosperous life. It is time for us to receive the gifts that so many have given. We can honor their voices and visions by accepting and sharing the abundance life has to offer.
